In the consummation, Satan with his hosts and all those outside Christ are finally separated from the benevolent presence of God, enduring eternal punishment, but the righteous, in glorious bodies, shall live and reign with Him forever, serving Him and giving Him unending praise and glory.

57 Traditional Step 2: We came to believe that a power greater that ourselves could restore us to sanity.

58 Acts 17:16-34

59 Redeeming Truth of Step 2Redeeming Truth of Step 2 God lovingly stepped into human history by taking on flesh in the person and work of Jesus Christ in order to provide hope and a remedy for the insanity of our sin and a way back into fellowship with Him. He succeeded where we have failed in living a life that we cannot, taking on our sin, dying a death that we deserve and through His resurrection conquered sin and death and shame so that those who believe in Him might live. He promises new life, the forgiveness of sins and the Holy Spirit to those who repent and trust in Him. We came to believe that, by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, we can be restored. Not only do we get a taste of restoration in this life, but upon Christ’s return, we will see the fullness of all that He has promised.

60 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ--by grace you have been saved-- and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Eph. 2:4-9
